    I read an interview between author Edan Lepucki and Ruman Alam I liked the interview Sowith Edan's endorsement of Rich and Pretty a story about a long time friendship between two women I decided to read itIt didn't take long for me to realize I'm not thinking highly of this novel I actually began to laugh out loud in spots that were clearly not meant to be funny Many sentences and paragraphs felt awkward I'm thinkingI wouldn't talk like this for ANYTHING I'm 64 years old but honestly I didn't talk or think like these women at 'any' age Many books are written about women friendships Songs Without Words by Ann Packer was one of my favorites It never got the raving overall reviews but I thought it was terrific A few of my close woman friends loved it too Here's a uestion since we have a MALE author wanting to write about a long term friendship Why not write about 2 men? Maybe two straight men? Or maybe one could be gay point is we could us books on male bondingwhy not choose his own sex? I look for books about male friendships I learn thingslove to be included in on male bonding Did we need another book about 2 womanwhich frankly isn't offering much of any plot? A wonderful book about two men by the way a standoutis called The Tennis Partner by Abraham Verghesea book I can't recommend high enough But I won't recommend this book to any of my female friends I don't have friends like these two women My own daughters 30 and 34 wouldn't enjoy it Rich and Pretty is my least favorite book I've read all year Lucky me though it's been an outstanding reading experience this year so I've little to complain about Butwith Rich and Pretty It's not 'just' the story I don't like I actually don't care for the writing I don't like the 'descriptions' the author often chooses I kept reading because I was curious as to why the heck he chose things he did Things just didn't feel right Here is a paragraph that makes my head swim so many things about it I don't like Lauren's office is freezing You could keep butter on the desk You could perform surgery Every woman in the office they're all women keeps a cashmere sweater on the back of her chair They sit outstretched over computer keyboards like a bum's over flaming garbage cans The usual office noises typing telephone people using indoor voices the double ding of an elevator going down For some reason the doubleding of the elevator going down is louder than the single ding of the elevator going up There's a metaphor in there waiting to be untangled They make cookbooks these women There's no food just stacks of paper and editorial assistants in glasses She's worked here for four years It's fine WHAT'S FINE????? 2 stars

    This book gives you a glimpse into the lives of two best friends and how their relationship evolves as they get older The author is a talented writer in that his descriptions made Sarah's house or the streets of New York come to life in my brain yet this book was not my cup of tea Not only does nothing really happen in this book no plot no climax nothing to keep you turning the pages but none of the characters are particularly likable so I wasn't even invested enough that I wanted to know what happened to them The book ended and it was as if the author was just like I don't know what to write any I'll just stop right here yet I wasn't mad about it because I was just glad it's over A sincere thank you to Ecco BooksHarper Collins for the ARC

    I was hesitant to add this one after so many terrible reviews but all my book sources kept telling me to add it I had to read it READ IT I didThis book was tragically awful I still don't understand what prompted the author to write this or to formulate an outline for this novel The book is about two dysfunctional friends that were close in college and have grown up going down different paths can they relate? Of COURSE not Come on people have different lives to lead and sometimes you can't always connect to that bestie you had holding your hair back after a night of underage binge drinking The biggest problem I had throughout this book was how utterly bored I was Who cares about these two women? Who cares about the small idiosyncrasies of their lives Mundane droll and uninteresting does not lead to main characters that the reader wants to hear about The author also tended to be pretty crass with the writing at times which normally I'm all for but in this case it didn't lend to the characters because those notes stood out in stark contrast to everything else going on I have his newest book on my TBR because I cannot help myself and I'm wondering if I should remove it or give it a try at some point in the very far future If this book is on your TBR do yourself a favor and remove it

    300 pages of mansplaining female friendships without developing plot or even the females in the friendships Or even being clear about switching perspectives which I guess could have been intentional but with how flat the characters fell it didn't really work I mean it's not altogether unpleasant I just really have no idea what I just read

    I am curious about but can't remember where I read a review about this book but that prompted me to read it I found it a waste of time I couldn't get into any of the characters I keep waiting for a great insight into why the two female protagonists stayed friends and never got any I am irritated I kept reading even though I didn't like it

    Well here's a contender for my most disappointing and frustrating read of 2017 Spare me from this type of pretentious and utterly pointless writing I am too annoyed to even properly rant about it just to say there's €1795 I'll never get back damned pretty hardback tempting meone star

    A book written about a friendship between two women and how it changes develops pushes and pulls by a man Actually he does a very good job portraying the intricacies of a female friendship It is a book many would describe as a “summer read” a book that doesn’t really go anywhere Nothing extraordinary happens but you feel the nuances of the friendship and relate to them It is a friendship between two girls who met when they were 11 years old and the novel follows their friendship into their 30s One of the girls is “rich” and the other is “pretty” These adjectives don’t define them but definitely play a role in who they are and who they become The novel is a realistic look at how friendships look uneven at times and from many different angles at how there are intrinsic and external factors that push and pull the friendship together and apart It shows how beautiful a thing friendship is when it is long lasting with so many shared experiences that make two people feel like siblings even when the two people on the surface may seem so differentI feel like there is a whole class of books like this some with much depth than others This felt light and fluffy leaving me wishing for from the book

    Not terrible but I couldn't allow myself to give this a full three stars I got to the end thought so what? and that was it There was a lot of talk about growth and evolution but much felt like it was simply dwelling in the past Meh
